Two accused killers of a British soldier in Woolwich have denied murder charges. Prosecutors and witnesses told a court that Michael Adebolajo a.k.a. Mujaahid Abu Hamza and Michael Adebowale a.k.a. Ismail Ibn Abdullah ran over the unarmed soldier from behind, then stabbed and attempted to decapitate him. During the incident, the suspects ignored protests from witnesses and said the crime was retaliation for the deaths and British “oppression” of Muslims.
